    I hate everything about the young turks. Apparently one cannot measure threatening or geeky in this scenario, and even if so it's not relevant, but at ~4:20 he mentions an attractive blonde and goes over how relevant that description is. What a joke channel.

    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

    "Check your privilege" is basically just the ethos version of an ad hominem. It's not a usable argument, and it just makes you look like an ass to say it.

    To translate: you're basically saying, "You can't possibly have a logical and valid argument because of your demographic status." Which makes absolutely no sense, since demographic status has no relevance in logical arguments.
